Ray and Dana said what they think it could (and probably will) happen with the series
In the Mainframe of the Comic Con 2.0, in the channel Chuck Load of Comics, we have an interview with Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo, hosted by Perri Nemiroff.
We have a very fun interview, with both of them talking about how they auditioned for their iconic roles as Pablo and Kelly.
They also shared some anecdotes from the first season, their favorites scenes and some more behind the scenes stories.
But what it caught my attention, and brought you all here, is how they feel about having a new season of Ash vs Evil Dead.
At some point Perri asked:
“What do you think could have changed the fate of the show? Because it obviously wasn’t a quality issue(…).
So what do you think it was needed to change in order to make this great material found a bigger audience?”
To which Ray responded:
“I love the home we had on Starz, but it was so limited in its viewership, you know. If you didn’t want to subscribe to the network, then you know.
We could have had a bigger audience were we on a platform like even Hulu or Amazon or Netflix, but because we were on this cable subscription, it really limited the audience…”
“Because as the show got on to Netflix we started to see that people were still watching like season one through three and like into it, so it was kind of sad because this greatness and it didn’t get the praise that it should have gotten.
And personally I was really looking forward to seeing where things were gonna go with the show, just because we had set up so many relationships. It was just all there to play with.”
And Dana said:
“Well, I say, ‘Never say never…Because the way things are going.
I’ve been reading all these very terrifying things about our industry.
And you know with productions and things are being shelved and whatnot.
So I honestly feel like never say never.
There have been shows where they get cancelled but then they’re picked up by another network.”
Then she gave us some hope:
“So, I know Bruce has said he is in retirement, but I feel like Ray and I could convince him, don’t you Ray?”
If that wasn’t enough, Ray replied:
“He needs a good couple, like you know, of one or two years of just like chilling in the woods and not having the boomstick in his hand, and then he starts to crave it, and it will come back, you know what I mean?”
After all this, they talked a bit about Shudder, how it could be a good home for the series.
And what the writers and producers had in store for their characters in season 4… (spoilers in the video)
That just left me wanting to know more, how you feel about this, could we actually have a Season 4 after all?
